Ok i need to get my girlfriend a car but she wants to mod it also so i choose her a Nissan Skyline for Christmas.She is is saving her own money to buy one but im getting her one for Christmas and she could use that money she was saving to buy mods for it.But i need a lil help i dont really know much about Skylines other than the fact they make a sporty fuel efficient car what year and liter meaning 2.0 2.6 etc is the best skyline to mod and get the most HP out of?And she is planning on getting a Stroker kit and Forged pistons for her car ,so what skyline would it be a R32-R33-R34 not going newer cause she dont want a newer vehicle past 02 so which one would it be?

if you want economy, just get a 2.0

if you want a bit of both get a GTST

if you want power get a GTR

but you won't get them for $12,000

I found a 1996 R33 2.6 i think and it was for $8,549 kinda of rusted though not bad.I might get her that.Anyways check this video out Nissan Skyline - Google Video this guy must have a different crankshaft,different Rods and Forged pistons what kind of turbo do u think is in that can be a twin can it?And is it a R33 or R34 and is it a 2.6 he might of just put a stroker kit in it and made it a 2.7.

hmm, judging from that vid its running a 2.67 degree poncam, aluminium crankshaft, polyurethe rods and nylon pistons,, sounds like a Bean can on a Hoover Turbopower 2 turbine.

sounds like it may have been stroked by a japanese man at the docks.

also sound like a 3.2, not a 2.7

yeah, stick an exhaust, chip and air filter on it and it'll exceed 900 horses easy

all R34's are 2.6 abart from the Bill Bailey models which were 2.7 and the Peter Kay's which were a massive 3 litres
